  • Call of Duty Black Ops Review: The Best COD Multiplayer

    Well I guess this was inevitable. Considering this was the biggest video game of…(the month?) and considering I got it the day it came out, and I’m done with the campaign, and I’ve gotten a hefty dose of the Multiplayer, well it is... More

    This week's Replay on Castlevania 64 had me thinking all day. Why is 3D so desired? Sure, for certain genres 3D makes sense. I don't think I would want to play an FPS in 2 dimensions, and I certainly can't imagine going back to 2 dimensions... More

  • Splosion Man - Running toward greatness, one explosion at a time

    I've never really been much of a "platformer" gamer. I never played the various Mario games; Donkey Kong was enjoyable at the time, but I hold no real fond memories of it other than as just one of the many coin-op games I played as a kid... More
  • Games That Took Skill

    After watching my long time girlfriend finally become immersed into the gaming lifestyle, I began to watch her and think, "It's really interesting to see someone new to the scene try games that have difficulty to them." So I decided I would... More
  • YouTube Just May Be My New Best Friend!

    My story begins during the Bastogne mission on R.U.S.E. when I just couldn't get the AT guns to their destination. I turned to YouTube hoping for a decent walkthrough on the mission. Boy did I find one. After following the walkthrough, I actually... More
